The Let’s Colour project added colour to the famous Shanghai Gate, injecting new life into the 200-year-old landmark.
The two-storey building is a combination of traditional Chinese decorative culture and a western architecture style and has become a symbol of old-Shanghai culture. But the landmark was getting old and turning grey so the Let’s Colour project stepped in to reignite its spirit.
A lot of red was used in this project to match the gate’s traditional colour, while a modern twist was introduced by infusing a number of different shades and tones. The wonderful colours not only excited volunteers but also inspired the people who live in Shanghai. Passers-by were also surprised by the gate’s new look and crowds gathered to watch the painting unfold.
The gate’s makeover not only refreshed the historical building of Shanghai it also reignited the spirit of a symbol of an age.
